Springtime, calving and lambing are fast on the approach and last week saw us cleaning out the cowshed in preparation. Muck-spreading continues and the old fence in the top fields is almost completely dismantled, ready to be replaced. Our SRUC Organic Farming Student Abi has had her first tractor-driving lessons and has been enjoying driving up to feed the sheep on sunny-frosty mornings. Preparations for ‘Meg’s Veg’ market garden are well underway, with the first seedlings appearing in the polytunnel, and an amazing amount of work has been done digging a trench (by hand!) for a section of the fencing that can’t be accessed by machinery. Meg’s first customers have already been in touch – could you be the next to sign up?? LATEST NEWS: Coldwells is going to feature in a film about local wheat and bread. Artist Katie Stewart is conducting a project called Bread + Butter for Macduff Revival – she will be making a loaf out of locally grown wheats and has already visited our farm to do some filming and interviewing.
